Resistance To The Lockup
IS GROWING





Q. Why is Dr Anthony Fauci, MD, leading the pandemic panic?

A. It makes him IMPORTANT!

Will Trump fire him soon?

Ronald Ernest Paul is an American author, physician, and retired politician who served as the U.S. Representative for Texas's 22nd congressional district from 1976 to 1977 and again from 1979 to 1985, and for Texas's 14th congressional district from 1997 to 2013. Dr Paul is a medical doctor and has been a leading libertarian for decades.

Personally, I have no problem with "social distancing". I do it anyway. People are nuts. I have always avoided the crowds. Crazy people are dangerous. Lynch mobs are dangerous. Ask that guy hanging on the rope what he thinks. Governments are always dangerous. They do bad things. Stay away from me, you freak. 

SEROLOGICAL TESTING

The FDA has approved the first antibody test for COVID-19.
Several groups are also working on a blood test that would show whether someone once had COVID-19, and possibly whether they’re immune.
These types of tests could help officials discover who’s no longer at risk for developing the disease.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has just approved the first antibody test for COVID-19 on Thursday.

The approval comes as a number of academic laboratories and medical companies are developing blood tests to help identify people who have contracted SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus that causes COVID-19.

These tests could potentially identify those with immunity to the virus. This would enable healthcare workers, first responders, and other essential workers who are no longer at risk to return to work sooner.

What is an “immunity” test?
There are two main types of COVID-19 tests.

Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing looks for the presence of the virus’ genetic material (RNA) on a nasal or throat swab. These tests can tell whether someone has an active infection.

The other type is serological testing. This type of blood test looks for the presence of antibodies produced by the immune system against SARS-CoV-2.

Antibodies help the body fight infection and are specific to a virus, bacteria, or other pathogens.

“If [COVID-19] antibodies are present when you run the [serological] test, that means [a person] had the infection in the past,” said Dr Juan Dumois, a pediatric infectious diseases’ physician at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital, in a Newswise expert panel.

Also, “those antibodies can be present in someone who may have been infected but never even had any symptoms,” he added.

People with weakened immune systems, though, may not make these antibodies properly.

After transmission, it can take several days for the body to produce antibodies to a virus. That makes serological tests less useful than viral RNA tests for diagnosing someone with COVID-19.

But antibodies can last for a long time in the body, which makes them ideal for identifying whether someone had once contracted the virus — even if it was weeks ago.

ZANTAC

For Immediate Release:
April 01, 2020
Español

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration today announced it is requesting manufacturers withdraw all prescription and over-the-counter (OTC) ranitidine drugs from the market immediately. This is the latest step in an ongoing investigation of a contaminant known as N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) in ranitidine medications (commonly known by the brand name Zantac). The agency has determined that the impurity in some ranitidine products increases over time and when stored at higher than room temperatures and may result in consumer exposure to unacceptable levels of this impurity. As a result of this immediate market withdrawal request, ranitidine products will not be available for new or existing prescriptions or OTC use in the U.S.

“The FDA is committed to ensuring that the medicines Americans take are safe and effective. We make every effort to investigate potential health risks and provide our recommendations to the public based on the best available science. We didn’t observe unacceptable levels of NDMA in many of the samples that we tested. However, since we don’t know how or for how long the product might have been stored, we decided that it should not be available to consumers and patients unless its quality can be assured,” said Janet Woodcock, M.D., director of the FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research. “The FDA will continue our efforts to ensure impurities in other drugs do not exceed acceptable limits so that patients can continue taking medicines without concern.”

NDMA is a probable human carcinogen (a substance that could cause cancer). In the summer of 2019, the FDA became aware of independent laboratory testing that found NDMA in ranitidine. Low levels of NDMA are commonly ingested in the diet, for example, NDMA is present in foods and in water. These low levels would not be expected to lead to an increase in the risk of cancer. However, sustained higher levels of exposure may increase the risk of cancer in humans. The FDA conducted thorough laboratory tests and found NDMA in ranitidine at low levels. At the time, the agency did not have enough scientific evidence to recommend whether individuals should continue or stop taking ranitidine medicines, and continued its investigation and warned the public in September 2019 of the potential risks and to consider alternative OTC and prescription treatments.

THIRD LEADING CAUSE OF DEATH

David Brownstein, MD


Folks, For many years now, I have been writing blogs for everyday people about the dangers of solely relying on prescription medications. Nearly all prescription medications work by poisoning enzymes and blocking receptors in the body. As I stated in my book, Drugs That Don’t Work and Natural Therapies That Do: “You can’t poison a crucial enzyme or block an important receptor for the long-term and expect a good result.” As health care providers, we should be searching for ways to make our patients healthier, not just treating symptoms with prescription drugs that provide no health benefits. Drugs do not always make us healthier and keep in mind that many commonly prescribed drugs fail most who take them.

For example, the standard-of-care when treating a patient for heart disease [to prevent heart attack] is to use a statin drug. In fact, nearly one-third of American adults currently take a statin drug. Statin drugs poison an enzyme in the body: HMG CoA reductase. The best of statin studies show that it results in a 1% (primary prevention—preventing a first heart attack) reduction in non-fatal heart attacks if it is taken for at least three years. That means the drug fails 99% of those who take it; they will not experience any benefit from the drug, and they are subjected to the myriad of side effects from taking a statin such as muscle pains, congestive heart failure, brain dysfunction and diabetes. I have written extensively about the failure of statins in my book, The Statin Disaster. How could one-third of Americans be taking a drug that fails 99% who take it?

Dr Peter Gotzsche, director of the independent Nordic Cochrane Centre claims that taking too many ineffective and unsafe prescription drugs could be the biggest problem we are facing today. He said of the issue:

“It is an enormous problem. It’s one of the biggest problems we have in the world today, but people don’t realize how terrible it is. I have estimated that our prescription drugs are the third major killer after heart disease and cancer. And I have recently looked at psychiatric drugs, and these drugs are so harmful that they alone are also your third major killer after heart disease and cancer.”

It is interesting to note that Dr Gotzsche used to work for Big Pharma.

I could not agree with Dr Gotzsche more.  I have written about psychiatric drugs in my book Drugs That Don’t Work and Natural Therapies That Do. These drugs fail to work better than a placebo in most studies and they fail when compared to exercise in every study.

Before I continue, I want to make clear that I do prescribe prescription drugs. There are a time and a place for many drugs. If you have pneumonia, I think appropriate antibiotics should be prescribed. However, there are many prescription drugs that should never be prescribed, such as a statin medication, since they fail the vast majority who take them.

IS THERE NO WAY OUT?

Before the advent of modern medicine with antibiotics and vaccines in the 1950s, diseases such as tuberculosis were treated with fresh air and sunshine — even in the winter. Patients did get better! Now people are treated with "sheltering in place" and watching propaganda on TV. The underlying message is: Buy your Drugs. Some generously want the government to buy the drugs and dispense them for free!



Nation In Coronavirus Turmoil:
Is There No Way Out?

By Bill Sardi
April 4, 2020

Fearmongers show the body bags and caskets, display the obituaries; feature news reports of a newborn baby with coronavirus.  News media and government propagandists display a world with virtually no defence against a deadly viral pathogen.  No masks (nearly useless anyway) and a shortage of ventilators (70-90% die if they get to this point).

Now mayors (not health authorities) mandate masks and really whip up more fear.  Every politician wants to hang his political hat on his handling of the coronavirus outbreak.  Wear a mask or otherwise, you won’t be allowed to stand in line to get food at the grocery store, or at least others in line will chase you away, being fearful of transmission of infectious disease themselves.

With the population feeling defenceless because there is no vaccine, the last gasp measure is to quarantine and socially space (isolate) people, which is obviously not working in Italy (see chart below), didn’t work on an ocean liner, and didn’t work on an aircraft carrier.




The masses follow instructions/orders by their overseers, with no awareness that lack of sunshine vitamin D is what triggers these seasonal infectious disease outbreaks in the first place.

News media is to blame.

A report published at Foreign Policy magazine states: “We should recognize that news media is overwhelmingly incentivized to produce negative and alarmist headlines without accompanying historical context and analytical expertise for the average person to evaluate the severity of those headlines.”  Author Micah Zenko goes so far as to say: “Fear is a national security crisis” in itself.

Another report published in Psychiatry Research says: “Fear seems more certainly a consequence of mass quarantine.”

Even anti-government news media like Infowars stoke the coals of fear and panic (headline: “coronavirus is now the 3rd leading cause of death in the U.S.” (totally false).  Yellow journalism reigns.

The term “killer virus” is used for effect and is frequently found in news reports.

You can’t go online without some real-time tabulator of COVID-19 cases and deaths being displayed.  These real-time death charts have literally replaced baseball scores.  It’s the political drama in America now.  Counting deaths related to a virus instead of home runs.

Reporting each and every case of the common cold

COVID-19 coronavirus was a common cold virus.  Now it is a deadly pathogen.  Imagine doing this in prior years, running around counting the number of people with colds and reporting them on the TV weather report.

What does TV news resort to now to capture viewers?  Individual reports of people’s ordeal with a head cold.  “Molly Johnson tells her personal story about her ordeal with her diarrhoea, fever and sore throat – on the news report at six.”  The TV cameras will soon be following ambulances to cover sensationalist cases of bleeding haemorrhoids (“if it bleeds, it leads” is an old saying in journalism).

Modern medicine employs fear.

Modern medicine has repeatedly used the fear of not taking drugs, [such as] not taking statins to lower cholesterol, for a long time.  This is despite as many people have mortal heart attacks with low as high cholesterol.

Attempts to convince people to change health habits with facts against fear is an uphill and often fruitless battle.

Only a few will need to be hospitalized.  But “what if?” is the question in the back of the public’s mind.  That is how vaccination is sold.  Few parents have the time to examine the (lack of) science behind vaccination.  Scientific information is not often examined when making a decision to vaccinate.  There are social pressures and the fear of making the wrong decision and being blamed for “my kid getting chickenpox.”  Better not be a bad mother [mothers think].

Great Depression II

by Morley Evans

The world's US dollar economy has for decades been a gigantic bubble ready to pop. Had the bubble not been burst by the coronavirus something else would have done it. The lockdown will create is creating a new Great Depression. Bad investments are liquidated during a depression. Governments default on debt. Argentina told the World Bank to go whistle a few years ago for instance. When the Pound Sterling ruled the world people thought, "What could possibly go wrong?" The United States has no possibility of ever honouring the loans the Chinese hold on the US Treasury. Buying US Treasury Bills means China loaned us money. There is not one chance in 1,000,000,000,000 they will be repaid. The United States knew that when it borrowed the money. Japan holds nearly as much American government debt as China. American hegemony is over. Say goodbye to "the most powerful military the world has ever known." Washington blew it. The "American Century" didn’t last very long. It did a great deal of harm while it lasted. Don't cry. Say goodbye and good riddance.
